그후 부트 시스템을 위한 새로운 방식의 펌웨어인 EFI와 UEFI가 나타나고, 2.2TB보다 큰 다스크들에 파티션을 정의하기 위해 GPT 파티션 테이블이 생겼습니다. 갑자기 리눅스 시스템을 설치하고 부팅하는 다양한 옵션이 생겼고, 한 방법으로 모든 기기에 알맞은 접근 방식이었던 것은 훨씬 더 복잡한 무언가로 변하게 되었습니다.
Let's take a moment to review the options available to you for configuring a hard drive to boot Funtoo Linux. This Install Guide uses, and recommends, the old-school method of BIOS booting and using an MBR. It works and (except for rare cases) is universally supported. There's nothing wrong with it. If your system disk is 2TB or smaller in size, it won't prevent you from using all of your disk's capacity, either.
But, there are some situations where the old-school method isn't optimal. If you have a system disk >2TB in size, then MBR partitions won't allow you to access all your storage. So that's one reason. Another reason is that there are some so-called "PC" systems out there that don't support BIOS booting anymore, and force you to use UEFI to boot. So, out of compassion for people who fall into this predicament, this Install Guide documents UEFI booting too.
